Artwork Description:   Painting is based on sketches made in al'aperto style but the painting was created in the studio. A Romantic landscape style based on the Italian veduta tradition: distant views with dramatic skies. Calligraphic brushwork in the sky. A majestic vista of the Coastal Mountain Range of Oregon. This painting is complex and sophisticated, akin to an opera piece by Wagner or Verdi. Few landscape painters have produced works both modern in brushwork and abstract forms yet naturalistic enough to be an articulation of the Italian veduta tradition. Hopefully I have succeeded here in accomplishing this. The sweeping horizontal strokes creare eye movement yet the calm and mighty Oregon mountains give it gravitas.
